UiPath Robot

The UiPath Robot Guide

Command Line Interface

The Robot Command Line Interface (UiRobot.exe) is a console application which can request to start jobs, and waits for their output. It is a direct client of the Robot service, and communication is done through an IPC protocol.

To make use of the command line arguments supported by Robots, make sure that the UiPath Robot service is running. If not, start it from the Services Microsoft Management Console snap-in.


To make it easier for you to work with command line arguments, navigate to the directory in which the Robot is installed using the change directory command. For example, if you did not change the default location of the Robot, you can use the following: cd C:\Program Files (x86)\UiPath\Studio.

All the examples displayed in the Arguments Description chapter are constructed from the assumption that you performed this action.
